SAN ANTONIO (AP) The San Antonio Spurs lost Tim Duncan to an ankle sprain, putting a dampener on their 111-96 victory over the Golden State Warriors in the NBA on Monday.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Duncan would be out "a while" but didn't have a timetable.

The injury looked potentially serious as Duncan lay on his side, clutching his foot with both hands, for more than a minute. The 34-year-old All-Star steadied himself with the help of trainers while limping off the court.

Manu Ginobili scored 28 points for San Antonio, while Tony Parker added 17 points and 15 assists.

Ekpe Udoh led Golden State with 15 points. It was Udoh's foot that Duncan appeared to be trying to avoid while landing awkwardly after hitting a short jumper in the first quarter.

Celtics 96, Knicks 86

In New York, Boston scored the final 10 points for a spirited victory over the Knicks.

Boston's Kevin Garnett had 24 points and 11 rebounds, while Rajon Rondo added 13 points and 12 rebounds.

Carmelo Anthony scored 22 points for the Knicks, but neither he nor Amare Stoudemire had a field goal in the fourth quarter.

Grizzlies 103, Jazz 85

In Memphis, Zach Randolph scored 19 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to lead seven Grizzlies players in double figures.

Bulls 132, Kings 92

In Chicago, Derrick Rose and Kyle Korver scored 18 points apiece as the Bulls routed Sacramento.

Nuggets 123, Raptors 90

In Denver, Ty Lawson scored 23 points for the Nuggets, who raced out to a 29-point lead in the second quarter and never looked back.

Magic 97, Cavaliers 86

In Cleveland, Dwight Howard scored 28 points, grabbed 18 rebounds and was too much for the Cavaliers' front line to handle in leading Orlando to a win over the hosts.

Pacers 102, Nets 98

In Newark, N.J., Roy Hibbert scored 24 points and Danny Granger had 17 of his 20 in the second half for Indiana.
